Back in the office today.   Yesterday was good, made a nice turnaround from the horri ble day I had on Tuesday.   Finished everything on my list!  I have been to the gym, read email, caught up on projects with coworker who just came back after being in India for a month.   Now I'm off to get a cuppa and make my todo list for the day, which should be easy because I have a couple of fairly big projects in progress, so I just need to move them forward.


Embrace the suck!

Hazyjane check-in

Why oh why do I find it so difficult to declutter? I'm out of here (London, my flat) in two weeks! I need to get the place looking, if not minimalistic, at least tidy and clean! 

  • walk dogs
  • feed dogs
  • sort out my door-not-opening-full-of-clothes-and-water-washing-machine (oh dear: flooded kitchen)
  • declutter: 1 hour!!!!
  • take dogs to a friend's for the afternoon 
  • while I go to a meeting (2-3.30)
  • and maybe a Feldenkrais class (5.15-6)
  • get the dogs
  • make a healthy dinner (salad)
  • go to bed early

Also: need to measure my mattress so's I can order a new bed frame: this will go in my daughter's room temporarily and will  hopefully be a more tempting prospect to any potential tenants. (My bed has two mattresses on it...)

Also need to make insurance claim... (well, took the first step and they are sending me a claim form.)

It's an inside job...
